Description - Galway Girl by Ken Bruen

Ex-cop turned private eye Jack Taylor is on the hunt for a psychotic assassin who has been killing Galway police officers, one by one.

The latest Jack Taylor novel from the Godfather of Irish noir Jack Taylor has never quite been able get his life together, but now he has truly hit rock bottom. Still reeling from a violent family tragedy, Taylor is busy drowning his grief in Jameson and uppers, as usual, when a high-profile officer in the local Garda is murdered. After another Guard is found dead, and then another, Taylor's old colleagues from the force implore him to take on the case. The plot is one big game, and all of the pieces seem to be moving at the behest of one dangerously mysterious team: a trio of young killers with very different styles, but who are united in their common desire to take down Jack Taylor. Their ring leader is Jericho, a psychotic girl from Galway who is grieving the loss of her lover, and who will force Jack to confront some personal trauma from his past. As sharp and sardonic as it is starkly bleak and violent, Galway Girl shows master raconteur Ken Bruen at his best: lyrical, brutal, and ceaselessly suspenseful. Praise for Galway Girl : 'A bleak, gripping slice of noir Irish life ... As good a read as you'll come across this year' IRISH INDEPENDENT 'A surreal mind and an unusual writing style ... It shouldn't work, but it does, delightfully' THE TIMES 'The Godfather of the modern Irish crime novel' IRISH TIMES
